Suitability Test issues

Who do we act for?

We act for solicitors, prospective solicitors and prospective non-lawyer Managers making an application to the SRA where the Suitability Test applies including :-

  • Applications for approval of COLPs and COFAs;
  • Applications for approval of non-lawyer Managers; and
  • Applications for Student Enrolment and Admission to the Roll by prospective solicitors.

What do we do?

We’ll guide you through the test and any application forms which use the test.

We’ll be able to advise whether something is disclosable and if it is, how it’s best to go about doing this, what other evidence and references you will need, and what other steps you’ll need to take.

Why choose us?

We’ve acted for many individuals over the years, a few examples of which are given below :-

  • Acting on the successful application of an individual to be appointed COLP of a top 100 law firm with a disciplinary history; and
  • Successful appeals against SRA refusal to admit solicitors with criminal records, including of theft and drugs offences.
